Open Source & No Upselling

We believe in Open Source; code, content and mentality. That's why we don't have multiple tiers of tickets (gold, premium or super premium.) We only have "The Ticket," check it out here.

Community Powered

We are a diverse group of geeks, coders, scientists, analysts (& a former astronaut serving your lunch). We care deeply about local data communities, no big $/€ sponsors here, just data nerds, like you & I.

Community Matters

You might know us as Hakka Labs, the community platform behind DataEngConf. We're engineers ourselves, and are committed to building the most useful network to connect engineers globally around deeply technical events, training programs and career opportunities.

That's why DataEngConf has been re-designed to be uniquely different - we start by connecting the local data community with our global network, then layer on vetted speakers plus amazing attendees (like you!).

We believe everyone should be able to attend, regardless if you speak Klingon, collect shoes, sport dolphin hats, have freckles, wear glasses (even if you don't have to), or simply prefer to speak in code.

To learn more about the steps we take to include communities and protect diversity at our events, check out our Diversity Statement.

 

Remember, this is not the watered-down “big data” conference you may have attended previously - instead DataEngConf is built and run by software engineers and data geeks, like yourself!

We have teams from across Europe, the US and Asia participating every year along with many cool organizations (you may have heard of them: Spotify, Lyft, LINE, Apache Foundation, Datadog, etc.) and lots of 
smart speakers.

Our conference talks are hand-picked by our community. Expect real-world architectures of data pipelines and platforms, applied, practical examples of data science, and cutting edge AI implementations from the best startups we discover.

See you at DataEngConf in Barcelona!

Details on our *No Bullshit Guarantee

This might just be our Marketing Team daydreaming, but we actually, truly, honestly, (okay you get it) believe in authentic and deeply technical community events and we want you to enjoy them as much as we do. We want you to learn, grow, build, engage, launch, laugh and maybe cry (depending on what kind of repositories are in your GitHub) but most of all we want you to feel good about attending DataEngConf.

We are good at detecting bullshit, but in case we missed it, just let us know at

Platitudes are cheap. We've all heard services say they're committed to "diversity" and "tolerance" without ever getting specific. Read more ...
